Enjoy today and buckle up for snow and bitter cold this week

After a fairly quiet week, another round of snow is on the way tonight into Monday morning. First, we have one more day of above average temperatures in the mid 30s to look forward to. Today will be mostly cloudy, but dry. Accumulating snow will hold off until after midnight Monday.

The highest snowfall amounts will likely occur north of Eau Claire, and therefore the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Polk, Barron and Rusk County from 12 a.m. Monday to 6 p.m. Monday.

Snow will likely begin after midnight and continue through Monday morning before tapering off on Monday afternoon. Locations within the advisory will likely see the highest snow totals, and have the best chance of seeing 6"+. Locations further south will likely see lower accumulations likely less than 5".

The biggest impacts will be to Monday morning's commute and to travel through the day on Monday, when roads could be slick.

After that, temperatures will become FRIGID, dropping to near zero by Tuesday morning, with highs only in the single digits. By Wednesday morning, temperatures will likely be more than 10 degrees below zero, and highs may not even get above zero.

Temperatures will begin to increase slightly by the end of the week into the teens and 20s, with a slight chance of snow showers.
